Quick Wins

Design a welcome email journey

Learn 20 features you can use for your first welcome email and 10 additional options to make follow-up nurture emails more effective

What will I learn?

In this Quick Win you will learn:

  • 20 essential features of the perfect welcome email
  • How to review the effectiveness of your existing mails
  • How to expand your welcome programme into a welcome journey
  • 10 options for different emails in a welcome sequence
  • Techniques to review and improve your welcome emails

How is this Quick Win structured?

Thinking about the situation our members may be in with their emails, we have taken the common situation where you might have no welcome email or just a single email you are looking to make work harder. Or you may be looking to start or improve a series of emails. So, there are two main parts of this quick win, i.e. we look at improving your first email first and then go onto look at the whole sequence.
